VALLEY BOYS "Drone Attack" 7"
Toronto's VALLEY BOYS speed through four tracks of hyperactive punk here, frenetic tempos, desperate vocals and some tasty guitar work placing this solidly in the tradition of early '80s hardcore. "Drone Attack" is no one-dimensional thrashfest, however; these veterans deliver memorable songs and relentless energy that sets this apart from any number of generic contemporary rehash outfits, and there's real character here. While sounding like no one exactly, this is exemplary trad hardcore that would fit in nicely with the likes of The Fix, early Poison Idea and The Germs LP.
